Glutamates and Aspartame – Post 103

Careful studies have shown that when you combine foods containing glutamates (see my post “Glutamates: what are they ) and aspartame your blood glutamate levels are double what they would be if you at MSG alone.
For example, you eat several foods containing glutamates like corn chips, frozen dinner and soup your glutamate level will rise 20-fold. Now add a diet drink and the glutamate levels rise 40 fold or 4,000 percent. People eat like this all the time, especially younger people.
We know that people who have poor nutrition, chronic diseases, chronic stress, or are exposed to other toxins ( see “The Toxic Truth” ) are much more affected by the glutamates and other excitotoxins in food additives. Some lucky few are born with powerful detoxification and antioxidant systems, which give them much protection.
You must also understand that almost all processed foods contain one or more excitotoxins. Many have three to as many as five. When combined their toxic affects are multiplied. This is very common in soups, frozen dinners and chips.
In a future post we will discuss detoxification and antioxidants.

Hope – Post 102

Hope shines brightest
When the hour is darkest
Hope motivates
When discouragement comes
Hope enriches
When the body is tired
Hope sweetens
When the bitterness bites
Hope sings
When all melodies are gone
Hope believes
When the evidence is is elimminated
Hope listens for answers
When no one is talking
Hope climbs over obstacles
When no one is helping
Hope endures hardship
When no one is caring
Hope smiles confidently
When no one is laughing
Hope reaches for answers
When no one is asking
Hope presses toward victory
When no one is encouraging
Hope dares to give
When no one is sharing
Hope brings the victory
When no one is winning

“Choose you this day whom ye will serve.”—Josh. 24:15.
Every day there is a necessity of choice (a fork in the road).
“Shall I do this, or shall I do that? Shall I go, or shall I stay?” Many people do not know what to do. They rush about letting other people make decisions for them, then regret having taken their advice.
There are others who carefully reason things out. They weigh and measure the situation like dealing in groceries, and are surprised when they fail to attain their goal.
There are still other people who follow the magic path of intuition and find themselves in their Promised Land in the twinkling of an eye.
Intuition is a spiritual faculty high above the reasoning mind, but on that path is all that you desire or require.
Prayer is telephoning to God and intuition is God telephoning to you.
So choose ye this day to follow the magic path of intuition.

Negative Thought, The Enemy Before Me! – Post 099

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.”
Who is the enemy “before thee.” The negative thought-forms which you have built up in your subconscious mind. A man’s enemies are only those of his own household. The everlasting arms thrust out these enemy thoughts and destroy them.
Have you ever felt the relief of getting out some negative thought-form? Perhaps you have built up a thought-form of resentment, until you are always boiling with anger about something. You resent people you know, people you don’t know—people in the past and people in the present; and you may be sure that the people in the future won’t escape your wrath.
All the organs of the body are affected by resentment—for when you resent, you resent with every organ of the body. You pay the penalty with rheumatism, arthritis, neuritis, etc., for acid thoughts produce acid in the blood. All this trouble comes because you are fighting the battle, not leaving it to the long arm of God.
The long arm of God reaches out over people and conditions, controlling this situation and protecting my interests.
This brings a picture of a long arm symbolizing strength and protection. With the realization of the power of the long arm of God, you would no longer resist or resent. You would relax and let go. The enemy thoughts within you would be destroyed, therefore, the adverse conditions would disappear.
Spiritual development means the ability to stand still, or stand aside, and let Infinite Intelligence lift your burdens and fight your battles. When the burden of resentment is lifted, you experience a sense of relief! You have a kindly feeling for everyone, and all the organs of your body begin to function properly.

Faith is Expectancy – Post 098

Faith is expectancy, “According to your faith, be it unto you.”
We might say, according to your expectancies be it done unto you; so, what are you expecting?
We hear people say: “We expect the worst to happen,” or “The worst is yet to come.” They are deliberately inviting the worst to come.
We hear others say: “I expect a change for the better.” They are inviting better conditions into their lives.
Change your expectancies and you change your conditions.
How can you change your expectancies, when you have formed the habit of expecting loss, lack or failure?
Begin to act as if you expectedsuccess, happiness and abundance;prepare for your good.

Essential Oils and Pregnancy

Supplements of Omega 3 oils during pregnancy may reduce the risk of food allergies and eczema in children, according to a new study from Sweden. The occurrence of eczema and food allergies was significantly lower in infants of mothers receiving the fish oil supplements during pregnancy and the early months of breast feeding compared to placebo, according to findings published in the journal of ACTA Paediatrica.

“This randomized placebo controlled double blind study shows that omega 3 supplementation during pregnancy and lactation may reduce the risk of developing allergic sensitization to the egg, IG E-associated eczema and food allergy during the first year of life,” wrote the study authors, led by Catrin Furuhjelm from Linkoping University.
